How To Be More Feminine and 3 Big Ways You Block It
How to be more feminine in such a masculine-oriented world is more important than ever. Knowing how to awaken your feminine energy during these transformational times is important. Especially if you want to feel centered and calm in your life. Feminine energy is a powerful healing force. Do you truly know how to be feminine?
This is not saying men are bad or that masculine energy is bad. Both energies are vitally important. It’s just that you must have a balance of both to create harmony in your life. And we have been out of balance.
In this article, I want to introduce you to what it really takes and how to be more feminine. I’ll talk about the concept of Vibrational Nourishment and what you need to change in order to access the healing power of your divine feminine essence.
Awakening Feminine Energy Involves Nurturing Yourself
Being more feminine doesn’t mean “being more pretty”. Knowing how to be feminine is really about knowing how to take care of yourself and your body emotionally.
It’s a process of tapping into the softer, more subtle side of you. There are many ways to do this. The best way I know how to awaken feminine energy in yourself is through what I call Vibrational Nourishment. They are self-care practices to nurture yourself. Let me introduce it to you. It’ll change your life!
Nurture Your Feminine Soul with Vibrational Nourishment Practices
They self-care practices create energetic nourishment for your body as opposed to physical nourishment. It helps you balance your masculine and feminine energy. Not only do these practices awaken your feminine side they also calm and ground you. The female body responds to energetic nourishment. Just as healthy food nourishes your physical body, healthy energy nourishes your feminine soul.
Are you loving your feminine side enough to give her this energetic nourishment? Probably not. Most of us live a very fast-paced life. If you want to know how to awaken feminine energy in yourself you need to learn how to slow down. And you need to learn how to tap into the more subtle energies. The female body responds well to subtle energy.
Tuning into the subtle energy of your body has many benefits:
- Decreases Stress.
- Increases Self-Awareness.
- Is calming and emotionally soothing.
- Is the gateway to knowing how to awaken feminine energy in yourself
Awakening the healing power of your divine feminine energy requires knowing how to reach in instead of reaching out in unhealthy ways to food, people, places, and things.
There are things you are probably doing that block your access to this healing energy. Become aware of this.
Stop These 3 Things If You Want to Be More Feminine
1. Stop Buying Into the “Pretty Pressure”
The feminine ideal of a woman’s youthful beauty is a sought-after commodity. Youthful looks have a short shelf life, however the pressure for a woman to stay beautiful no matter what age is tremendous. That is of course until she doesn’t buy into that pressure.
Love yourself and your body’s unique beauty at every stage of life. Learn to allow your inner light and radiance to shine through. You can do this by ramping up emotionally nurturing practices. They are a profound yet simple way to increase your inner radiance as your outer radiance begins to fade.
As you age, which is inevitable, all you have (for beauty sake) is your inner radiance. Vibrational Nourishment and having established self-care practices are the nutrients or fertilizer for maintaining this inner radiance. And it’s at the core of how to be feminine.
It’s a way to give to yourself what you so readily give to others…nourishment. This is a way to turn your feminine energy and innate ability to nurture and nourish inward instead of always outward to others.
2. Stop Filling Yourself Up With The Wrong Things
A woman’s vaginal anatomy lends itself to the desire of “wanting to be filled.” We are sensual beings; Vibrational Nourishment will satisfy your need to “fill your sensual hole.”
Before you can awaken your feminine energy and vibrationally “fill your sensual hole”, you need to feel relaxed. You may not even realize all the habitual ways you stay busy in an effort to fill this sensual hole.
Many of these behaviors are taught, socialized, and ingrained in our culture. However, they don’t create the sense of inner peace that we all long for. Instead they create just the opposite. Not feeling fulfilled and looking for more.
Vibrational Nourishment self-care practices relax the feminine spirit. They are healthy things you can do to fill yourself up. Rather than looking for someone or something to fill you up, i.e., a man, shopping, or food, for example, turn inward instead.
3. Stop The Compulsive Behaviors
Free yourself from, overeating, over-drinking, overthinking, over-sexing, over-cleaning, over-talking, overworking… whatever it is for you. We all have our ways of reaching OUT instead of reaching IN.
If you want true fulfillment, inner peace, and happiness you will only find it within. Learn to reach IN! Reaching in is how you become more sensually alive. Slowing down, tuning inward and creating inner peace is how to be feminine. This is true divine feminine power.
Your hands are a great tool for this. I created an acronym – HANDS. It stands for Healing, Awakening, and Nurturing, Done Sensually. Your hands are your healers. Put them on your body often. T
The best self-care exercises for women must have an element of sensuality to them in order to be most effective. Sensuality is part of self-care. It’s the foundation of cultivating Vibrational Nourishment self-care practices and how to awaken divine feminine energy within yourself. Make contact!
Often, I tell my students, I touch myself a lot yet not in the way most people would think. I place my hands on my body. A kinesthetic relationship with my body is healing to me. With my hands I consciously touch my body, my heart, my belly, my breasts, my face etc. This type of connection is profound and precious. This type of self-care is a big part of awakening feminine energy in yourself and how to be feminine.
Vibrational Nourishment – A Sense of the Sacred
Vibrational nourishment practices will connect you to the sacredness of your body and your divine feminine essence. It’s because they heighten your senses and make you a more sensual person. They are a way of letting YOU know that YOU are there for YOU. Let this personal sensual practice be your savior.
Because let’s face it. Loving another can be vulnerable. The more you’ve gotten hurt, the less likely you are to open up. Instead, you emotionally protect yourself. That’s why these self-love and self-care practices are so important. You don’t want to shut down and numb out.
There is a danger of defensiveness in relationships. Cultivating a life-style where self-care becomes normal for you is a better protection than walling off and isolating yourself from love.
